In fact, the entire design is directly inspired by the vegetation, the mountains and everything else surrounding the house. The architects chose to use a palette of simple materials throughout the project, focusing mainly on wood, glass, stone and steel. With these they managed to create a rustic decor infused with modern details and to give the house lots of character.

Step inside though the main entrance which allows you to see right through the house and into the distance. This area sets the tone for a very open and airy interior design which defines the rest of the spaces. The rustic living room is a super cozy space which has a big fireplace surrounded by stone. This area is part of an open floor plan which also includes the dining area and the kitchen, a setup very commonly encountered in most modern and contemporary homes. Of course, it’s not just the main areas that are super charming and welcoming but also the smaller, secondary ones. For example, the rustic bathroom vanities turn these spaces into inviting extensions of the living space and the bedrooms.
